Choosing Poms

How do I choose the length?

Baton handles are measured from the center out (6” length = 12” across). Top handles are measured from the handle to the end of strand (6” length = 6” down).

Length Options:

  • 3" - A poof of color
  • 4" - Small and sassy
  • 5" - Volleyball size
  • 6" - Standard size
  • 7" - Basketball size
  • 8" - Big and flowy
  • 10" to 15" - Limited styles for extra cost

How do I choose the width?

The width is measured across the strand itself.

  • 3/4" - Holds ball shape
  • 1" - Easily seen from afar

Do the colors fade or chip?

No. They are fade-proof, waterproof, and shed-proof. All of our poms are manufactured in the USA, which means they are of the highest quality. Even their materials are American-made.

Do they arrive pre-fluffed?

Yes, our poms are fluffed. If you would like them un-fluffed for some reason, you may order the wooden-handle ones and indicate that in the Special Instructions box. Otherwise, they will arrive fluffed. Click for Fluffing Directions

Where should we store our team set?

The best storage is a cool, dry place in a mesh equipment bag (as opposed to an airtight plastic container). Airflow prevents them from having an odor. To prevent damage, avoid leaving them in hot places like a car or garage.

What if it rains on them?

The colors are water-proof meaning they won’t fade. But, it’s best to keep them dry. However, if your poms get wet from rain accidentally, completely shake out the excess water and then lay them on a towel when you get home. Use a fan to speed up the drying process. Periodically, shake the strands to keep them from sticking together. Repeat until completely dry.
